    Beauty Pill, the musical brainchild of veteran producer and engineer Chad Clark, recently teamed up with the Arlington, Virginia-based Artisphere museum to take on a unique artistic, musical, and sociological experiment. The band set up in a large room inside the museum with a windowed overlook and spent two weeks on display recording an album. Although they went in with racks of borrowed A-list studio gear, their initial recordings fell flat. It was only after Clark stripped everything down to… View this story

    In recent months, multi-GRAMMY Award-winning producer and mixer Chris Lord-Alge has adopted Focusrite’s RedNet Ethernet-networked converters as the interface of choice between his Avid Pro Tools system and his classic SSL 4000 E/G+ mixing console. For more than 20 years, Lord-Alge has brought digital multitrack sessions into his analog console via the Sony 48-track DASH tape machine format, but with tape supplies dwindling, he made the transition to RedNet 2 digital-to-analog converters and other RedNet hardware in late 2013. Lord-Alge… View this story

    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   I spent a weekend in the Chicago area installing an Apogee Symphony System for a client and doing some training. The install went surprisingly well, with no major issues aside from a missing BNC cable. If you’re not familiar with the Symphony system, you should check it out. It’s a phenomenal PCI-based system that connects any Apogee converter directly into your DAW (in this case, Logic) with insane audio quality along with virtually… View this story

    Provided by Sweetwater.   Q: My studio is outfitted with a DAW as well as a fairly large amount of outboard equipment, and it always delivers fairly good results. However, every once in a while there’s some weird distortion, and I’ll see a clip or something on one of the 20 different meters that’s either in the DAW or on the outboard. Is there some kind of hierarchy to these meters? A: A situation where you’re using multiple pieces of… View this story

Mid/side EQ Any true stereo sound might be able to be enhanced with mid/side EQ. It basically turns your stereo EQ… View this story

    Courtesy of Universal Audio.   Love it or hate it, data compression (not to be confused with audio signal compression, which is a different issue) schemes like MP3, FLAC, AAC, and other relatives have fundamentally changed music as we know it. The battle between fidelity and portability was long ago declared no contest, with convenience winning hands-down over sonic quality. But while the ability to compress what was once a wall full of vinyl into your pocket is a boon… View this story
